Hi there,

When you execute Snapshot actions, it returns an action ID.

Then you can use this Action ID and retrieve the status of the action. You can take a look at the actions documentation here:

For more details I would recommend taking a look at this very good answer here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
